Eek! I feel like I've been gone forever. Fortunately it doesn't appear that too much has changed here.
Life has been totally crazy and I've had some big changes. Of course, the biggest change is my little (huge) Italian Greyhound, Guppy aka Ghepardo Leonardo DePucci Tailwagger. He is definitely a biggie iggie weighing in at 16 lbs. He keeps me very, very busy. Aside from some common IG characteristics, he is the opposite of Jemimah. She was shy, fearful and preferred to stay home. Guppy is very social, loves going places (except the part in the car) and is the life of the party.
The other big change is moving to a new house. We had hoped to wait until we were ready to buy a house but that didn't happen. Our landlord decided to sell the house we'd been renting for 10 years. Shortly after we got the notice, my mother-in-law passed away. Suffice it to say house hunting was a nightmare but we did find a nice (much smaller) house. Moving was a nightmare on steroids. We've been here about two months and I still have unpacking to do but I have to figure out where to put all this "stuff."
Anywho, I haven't done any fractaling but I'm hoping to find my round tuit.
I have followed all the instructions for raising an cermet. I feed and water him; he is very fond of chikken.

And now he is almost the size of an ellyfant.
He went from this:
